Rated 5 out of 5 by Pootsy Great Quality, Comfortable, & All Around Great!
I purchased these boots a few days ago and after wearing them I can say with all honesty that the quality was noticeable from day one! These boots did need to be worked in, because the toe was a little stiff but that was expected with a leather boot and happened within the first day of wearing them. These boots have gotten more and more comfortable every time I put them on, and the wear will definitely look good on these boots. The boots arrived fast through shipping to Canada (4 days)! The boots are a bit darker and richer of a brown colour then shown in the images but this is not a bad thing! The natural beauty of the leather (scars, colour variations, etc) look very nice as well in my opinion. I did spray these boots with a good leather protector and do plan on treating them every month with a renewal oil. From what I can tell so far, these boots will be warm enough to get me through a cold Canadian winter if I just wear some warm socks underneath. The waxed leather laces (I think, but don't quote me on that) provide a nice grip when tying the boots up tight and add to the overall good look. The only concerns I have with the boot is that the sole is made out of a leather type material and at the moment is a bit slippery and allow my foot to somewhat slide around, but I am sure this will be fixed when they are worn in. My second concern is the interior -- the inside of the boot is lined with a very comfortable and insulated lining, which is great, but at the heel and the toe this lining stops and instead there is a different material.This material, I think it may be the leather but I am unsure because it's hard to see, rubs off and stained a couple pairs of white socks.This is not the end of the world and will probably also resolve itself with wear. Overall these two critics do not take away from the all around greatness of these boots, and I definitely do recommend picking up a pair of these today! The quality is guaranteed with LL Bean.
I will post another review of the boot in perhaps a few months to notify anyone who is concerned with how the product has held up!

Looked around other sites for boots and these stuck out. Purchased as gift, and received on time. This boot will last through any kind of weather. If there were boots for women I'd get them!

I returned another pair of boots that I purchased a while ago and got these. They seem to run true to size, I wear and ordered a size 9 and they fit perfect. I wear just one pair of socks and do not plan on wearing the boots in the winter. The color of the leather is a very nice deep brown, just what you expect. They are a little stiff when you first put them on but I believe they are going to break in rather nicely. I've only had them a few weeks but they are getting more comfortable each time I wear them. They are not a boot you would go on a long hike with. If that is what you are doing pay the extra for hiking boots. These are a good all around everyday boot. Great price as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by sleepyhemp High quality
The inside of the boots are very comfortable, especially with the shearing insoles. The leather is really high quality and can tell it will last forever but that doesn't matter because of the satisfaction for life guaranty so you cant go wrong buying these.
